This glitzy vintage Pamart lucite box-purse just shimmers with retro glamour. This is just a little thing and that makes it just irresistible.
The Pamart company specialized in metal filigree and molded bags beginning in the 1950s. Since, their darling handbags have become hard to find and incredibly collectible.
This little beauty has a great oval shape with a beautiful silver-colored base.
As you can see, the purse boasts a pierced floral design all the way around with added etched accents.
The lucite lid appears to be opaque black but is actually a barely-translucent shade of very deep purple. The tall, rigid handle is attached to the lid with pretty stamped components.
There is a small silver-toned ball latch on the front of the lid that keeps the handbag securely shut.
The underside of the base is also lined with a piece of dark lucite. T
This is where you will find an embossed maker's mark reading "Pamart, Brooklyn, N.Y., U.S.A."
There is a small crack on the lid as well as some other areas of expected wear and spotting throughout, though this precious vintage handbag remains in good condition overall.
